FOX looking for Casino gamblers.

FOX looking for Casino gamblers.
For The Casino, which will be taped this spring at downtown Las Vegas’ Golden Nugget, FOX and Mark Burnett are looking for “outgoing personalities who LOVE to gamble.” Producers are particularly searching for “people who are gambling for a specific purpose (to raise money to pay for something they really need or want) or who have a specific and compelling reason for coming to Vegas (wedding proposal, bachelor party, reunion, major life event, etc). If you have a larger than life personality and money to gamble to make your dreams come true in Vegas, we want to meet you.” If you’re cast, you get your face on FOX, and “a dream vacation” to Vegas. It’s not exactly clear what those selected will be doing in Vegas, besides gambling; the application [PDF] refers to those cast as both “a guest” and “a player.” Applications are due Jan. 31.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
